Roogoo Twisted Towers

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I had heard some good things about Roogoo Twisted Towers, and decided to try it for myself. So I purchased a copy, and worked it into my busy Family Friendly Gaming schedule. There are various shapes that must drop into the matching holes until they reach the bottom. This is a simple enough concept, unfortunately the implement is not as innovative as the gaming concept. Southpeak games also included some various different mini games to spice things up.

Roogoo Twisted Towers Review

Cheat Code Central
5 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Most of the main elements in Twisted Towers that were carried over from the original Roogoo are still quite good. The puzzle gameplay is definitely solid, though the extra tacked-on mini-game and control elements hamstring the game's momentum. Repetition also sets in sooner than it should for a game with over 100 levels. If you don't have the means to play Roogoo on PC or Xbox LIVE, then Twisted Towers will do in a pinch, but prepare for a huge dose of overstimulation.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: The Wii has seen its fair share of party and puzzle games succeed on the system. Perhaps the ultimate one, Boom Blox , was in mind when the developers at SpiderMonk made Roogoo: Twisted Towers. Unfortunately while the two games share a cutesy art style, Roogoo plays nothing at all like Boom Blox. While Roogoo is pretty fun to say, it is considerably less fun to play.

Roogoo: Twisted Towers Review

GameSpot
24 July 2009
  • Excerpt: You never realize how important visual clarity is in a puzzle game until it's taken away from you. Roogoo: Twisted Towers starts with the age-old concept of descending blocks and moves it into a 3D space. Then, it falls in love with its own 3D-ness, focusing more on fancy camera angles and dimensional depth than on affording you clear view of the action.
  • Pros: Many levels are challenging and rewarding, Nice variety of environments, A couple of clever boss battles
  • Cons: All too often, you can't see what you need to see, Skydiving isn't much fun, Lame co-op and party play
